For a decade the South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame has strived to research, document and illuminate the splendid careers of the very finest players ever to display their talents on the basketball courts across our state.
On their 10th annual induction banquet on Saturday, March 23, in Sioux Falls, SD, fifteen all-time greats were inducted into the Hall of Fame, bringing total membership to 158 of the most recognizable names in South Dakota basketball history. Three hundred attended the banquet and ceremony with twenty-six of them belonging to Cregg Skarin’s fan club. Congratulations to Mr. Cregg Skarin.
